NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH COMMUNITY pt.1

January 11, 2018

I remember when this campaign first started and signs started appearing.

Big bold letters on the left stating “NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH COMMUNITY” and a caricature silhouetted of a shadowy figure on the right. Like a printed poster for an old time radio show.

1 800 I RAT YOU

Not me, I want to live in a mind your own business neighborhood.

I mean completely mind your own business with a lazer focus down to the minutest of details .

Exalting self scrutiny to an art form, so much so, that if every individual fixed themselves the only thing the whole cosmos would know, is peace.

Not really a bible person, but this rolled around in my head for this post. In other words, had to Google it. Seems to fit.

Matthew 7:3

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye.”

Cameras, Red Lights, Inaction

Apparently the only way we think we can behave properly is if we have cameras on everything and everybody at all times.

Hasn’t worked yet, becoming fodder for further distraction. C-Span has really elevated politicians accountability and behavior.

Likewise You Tube, shows us the worst of us and our foibles. Like an insatiable schadenfreude circus side show.

Merely manufactured consent inviting an atmosphere of big brother via vicious vile victimizing voyeurism giving vindication to bad behavior because somewhere someone did something worse.
